    Joel at the front desk was so helpful, and the concern shown as I checked out the next morning was great I had a magic time and will definitely be recommending this hostel to friends and family, I will be back to take advantage of all the hostel has to offer

    Me and my friend lived in this hostel for two months and we loved it! The atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff is super friendly. I definately recommend the free walking tour! You see so much of Byron Bay and surroundings and the owner of the hostel/tour guide can tell you everything about Byron. We will stay here again if we come back in byron bay!

    Great atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff, close to the beach and shops, and good facilities. And I high recommend doing the free walking tour up to the light house! We ended up seeing all sorts of animals; dolphins, sting rays, sharks, snakes and more.

    Good location and comfy bed. However toilets and showers weren't clean and I thought it was overpriced compared to better YHA I've stayed in.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
